Anchorsong has gained international acclaim for his unique live shows. Many people describe Anchorsong’s performances as "like watching a painter draw on a white canvas", as he creates electronic music completely live using a MPC2500 sampler and a keyboard right in front of the crowd. While he mainly performs solo, he frequently expands his setup with a string quartet for a truly mesmerizing show. Anchorsong’s second LP Ceremonial was released in January 2016. In this record, he blends traditional and modern music with a richly textured tapestry of outward-looking sounds. Ceremonial won the support from tastemakers such as Lauren Laverne, Tom Ravenscroft, and Steve Lamacq.
